The cottage is a pretty detached period cottage understood to date back to the early 1800's. Under the current ownership since 1992, the property has been subject to extensive refurbishment and enlargement. The original cottage has main walls of solid stone and the extension Purbeck stone all under a slate roof. The cottage offers good sized accommodation and character features include pine cottage/panelled doors, exposed floor boards, window seats, marble fireplace, beamed inglenook fireplace and cast iron fireplace, flagstone floors and oak lintels. The large fully floored and lined loft/attic offers potential for additional accommodation (subject to raising the roof height and the usual Local Authority approval). There is a multi-fuel stove with back boiler providing radiator heating, oil-fired Aga providing hot water plus one radiator and UPVC sealed unit windows.
There is a long tarmac driveway, a very large detached modern garage/workshop and attractive front and rear gardens backing onto fields.
On the ground floor there is a sitting room with a marble fireplace, separate living room with large beamed inglenook fireplace, inner lobby, good sized kitchen/dining room with walk in pantry, bathroom and lean to verandah.
On the first floor there is a good sized principal bedroom with an en suite shower room, 2 further double bedrooms and on the second floor (with access via fixed stairs and door from bedroom 3) a very large useful attic/playroom.

DETACHED GARAGE/WORKSHOP Double doors. Power & light.
The front garden has brick and stone walls, lawn, shrub and flower borders with stone steps leading to the front door. The rear garden is again lawned together with planted borders and adjoins fields. From the gardens there are delightful far reaching views across the village to the Bride Valley beyond.
Litton Cheney is a picturesque village situated in the heart of the Bride Valley surrounded by attractive countryside, only a few miles inland from the Jurassic Coast. It is a delightful Conservation village consisting largely of period stone and thatched cottages, for which the area is particularly well known. There is a church, village hall, primary school, stream side pub, YMCA, successful farm, organic and other artisan businesses.
The immediate locality is designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are excellent walking opportunities from the cottage. The beautiful World Heritage coastline is within only a few miles. The nearby A35 provides good access to the market town of Bridport about 6 miles to the west and to Dorchester, the County town of Dorset, about 9 miles to the east. From here there is a main line rail service to London. The larger centres of Weymouth and Yeovil are within easy driving distance.
From Bridport proceed along the A35 towards Dorchester. After about 5 miles take the first turning signposted to Litton Cheney. Descend the steep hill and at the junction turn left. After a short distance turn left into The Paddocks and the cottage will be found after a few hundred yards on the left.
